Fossil amber insects


#1

Joseph P. Stachura has acquired a unique collection of polished
amber specimens. All natural and untreated, they reveal a variety of
fossil insects and flora

Frozen in time for twenty to thirty million years, sizes range from
jewelry to paperweight. Wholesale prices begin at $30.00.

The specimen shown is $250.00 at 6.90 grams, 30.5mmx47mm.


Weight: 6.90 gr.

12 Insects +: Hymenara Leaf, Winged Ants, Fairy Fly, Widges, Wasp, etc.

Fossil Insects in Amber

All of these specimens are natural, untreated amber with at least
one insect.

20 to 30 millions years ago in what is now the Dominican Republic,
these insects were trapped in the sticky resin of the extinct
Hymenaea protera, a leguminous flowering evergreen tree closely
related to the present-day Algarrobo.

We have listed the primary insects in each piece to the best of our
ability. A 10X loupe will greatly enhance visibility; a binocular
microscope will pull you right into the golden, frozen past. You may
find biota we’ve missed. Maybe you will discern species or even
discover a new one.
